Pentax 645D tethering options

Hello! Anyone with experience tethering a 645D? Hoping to learn how to do it...internet research has given me opposing information.

You can tether using a USB cord and with the purchase of the Image Transmitter or Image Transmitter 2 software:
image transmitter pentax | B&H Photo Video

The latter is also compatible with the 645Z.

Try PK-Tether, it's free.
I like it more than pentax own SW (Image_Transmitter_S_SW123).
The new version is not working with the 645D.
(This information is based on another members experience. I only got the 645D)

Thank you for your response. I had not tried PK Tether because the 645D is not listed as a supported camera.

Hi Mcagwin. Please check carefully which version of Image Transmitter you need. IT2 is, I believe, only for the "Z". There was an earlier version for the "D". Given different connection systems, I think the newer program may not work for the "D".
